    I have never liked Valentines Day. I like you am old enough to remember the school days and angst that came with Valentines day. I had a teacher that insisted that everyone had to give cards to everyone else and I loved it. I think that you should show love everyday not just on a commercial made holiday.

    For me the best part of Valentine’s Day was decorating the box! But what really dates me is I went to school in a one room country school house…everyone got a card from everyone else but there was no candy at all. Nope…even as an adult I never got excited by Valentine’s Day. Just a lot of commercialism!

    I’d rather go out for dinner just because! And I can buy my own gift…lots and lots of books by my favorite authors!

    I could take I or leave it. I much prefer my husband to show how much he cares by doing something for me throughout the year, on his own, rather than be told he should one day of the year. And seriously, buying flowers or candy or jewelry is not the only or best way to show your love. Just my opinion.

    I love it but mu husband does not. So I buy myself something and say it is from him.

    I’m not exactly a Valentine’s Day hater but I never really cared for it. It’s just another normal day for me.

    It’s become a manufactured holiday that makes single people feel inadequate and people in relationships feel anxious. And a Valentine only has to love you one day a year, what’s the point?

    I’m indifferent. Initially, Valentine’s Day is pretty much “Western” (or is American) culture. So it’s not a big deal when I grow up. Only after a lot of pop culture coming into the media, and then the retailers are getting into it, we see Valentine’s being celebrated everywhere. Since I’m single (I’m asexual aromantic), again, it’s just another normal day for me.
